Fat Injections may Assist in Breast Reconstruction

Irradiated tissue can provide complications during breast reconstruction. Because it firms and hardens tissue, irradiation can also impact breast reconstruction results and cause less than ideal contours. However, a new study has found that fat injections prior to reconstruction can add pliability and elasticity to the area. This can produce more natural looking and pleasing results when used in conjunction with both tissue expanders and breast implants during reconstruction.
